Inter-personal Computing: Towards Augmented Real-life
Today, computers are no longer constrained within boxes and datacenters; they go mobile and ubiquitous, getting extensively interwoven with every facet of our real physical life. They sense, understand, and actuate upon our everyday life so that we, humans, are empowered beyond our natural-born physical and cognitive abilities. Along this new computing horizon, my talk will focus on augmenting our real-life interpersonal interactivity and experiences with sensible and intelligent human-centered mobile computing systems. As social beings we are, real-life interpersonal interaction has been a crucial enabler of many higher-level human activities. I will introduce new life-immersive services that broaden the computational awareness on our fine real-life social dynamics, and more proactively, help us excel in our everyday interpersonal interactions. Therein, I will discuss end-to-end systems challenges and design questions with today’s or near-future life-immersive computing platforms, as well as the unique computing-driven angles that they have newly brought to various real-life social agenda.
